Federal Impact Aid Survey:
This is the same message as last week, but it is important that we have every family complete the Federal Impact Aid Form so we are going to run this message for the next few weeks. It just takes a few moments to fill out the Federal Impact Aid Survey on Power School and the form can be completed for siblings all at the same time. Just be sure to log onto Power School using your parent account, not the student account.
October 15, 2021 – October 29, 2021
Each fall, the Northern Burlington County Regional School District reaches out to all parents asking that they complete the Federal Impact Aid survey. This is a very important document that needs to be completed in a timely manner. To make this process more convenient for our families, this Federal Impact Aid survey can now be completed electronically.
The Northern Burlington County Regional School District must receive an annual signed survey from ALL parents or guardians for EACH student in order to receive federal funding of military affiliated students.
Please note that even if you are not active military or a civilian working on federal property, it is essential that ALL parents and guardians complete and sign this form as of October 15, 2021 and return by October 30, 2021.
Federal Impact Aid supports local school districts with concentrations of children who have parents/guardians in the uniformed services or parents/guardians employed on eligible Federal Properties. It was designed to assist local school districts that have lost property tax revenue due to the presence of tax-exempt Federal Property served by the district. Each year, Northern Burlington receives Federal Impact Aid funds because of your cooperation in returning these forms to us in a timely manner.
In order for our District to meet the filing deadline, we need to have the completed form(s) submitted no later than October 30, 2021, even if your employment does not fall within the categories listed on the survey.
Click here to log into your PowerSchool parent account, once logged in click on the link from the left side of the webpage that says Forms and complete the “Title VIII Federal Impact Aid Survey” electronically. A form needs to be submitted for each child, however if submitting for multiple children, please click the arrow up key next to the submit button. This will allow you to submit the form for each child without having to reproduce each survey selection.
Thank you for your continued support of the Northern Burlington County Regional School District. If you have additional questions, please contact Jill Markley, Administrative Assistant, extension 2003 or Richard Kaz, School Business Administrator (609) 298-3900 extension 2080.
Parent conferences are scheduled for in the middle school November 17, 18, and 19. In an effort to make them more accessible, there will be a mix of in person conferences and virtual conferences. The schedule is as follows:
HS virtual afternoon
HS in person afternoon
HS virtual afternoon
HS in person afternoon
Registration for conferences is done through a program we use called PTC Wizard. In the coming
days, look for an email invitation to register for conferences, both in person and virtual. Please keep in mind, there are a limited number of slots available and it is first come, first serve. In addition, for those registering for an in person conference, consistent with Governor Murphy’s executive order, those participating will all be required to wear a mask the entire time of the visit to the school. Please plan accordingly.

Assessment Schedule 2021-2022;
During the course of the school year, students will participate in various standardized assessments. Assessment Information and NB’s Assessment Schedule is available on the website: http://nburlingtonnj.apptegy.us/o/nbc-rsd/page/student-assessment--3
The deadline to submit physical packets for winter sports is now past, and students who submit paperwork moving forward may not be cleared in time to participate in tryouts. Nevertheless, the sports packets can be found at this link: Physical Packets for winter sports. Please submit them to email@example.com at your earliest convenience.
Students, staff and visitors are required to wear masks while in school. We are grateful for the attention given to this requirement and cooperation in this regard.
More recent CDC guidelines regarding masks have been posted and these are noted below:
Wear masks with two or more layers to stop the spread of COVID-19
Wear the mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
CDC does not recommend the use of gaiters or face shields. Evaluation of these face covers is on-going but effectiveness is unknown at this time.
Per the CDC guidelines, gaiters are not recommended at this time because of questionable effectiveness. Furthermore, since masks must be secured under the chin, traditionally worn bandanas are not considered effective either. As a result, students, staff and visitors may not wear bandanas or gaiters as a mask while in school. Disposable masks will be provided for those who do not bring an acceptable mask to school.
